Volcano (Film)In Volcano muss Tommy Lee Jones die Menschen von Los Angeles vor einem ausbrechenden Vulkan retten. Das dürfte reichen als Inhaltsangabe für Mick Jacksons Katastrophenfilm „Volcano“. Natürlich, wie bei jedem Film dieser Machart, wird das Schicksal mehrerer. Als Los Angeles von einem Erdbeben erschüttert wird, untersucht Mike Roark, der Leiter der Katastrophenschutzbehörde, die Ereignisse und trifft dabei die hübsche Geologin Dr. Amy Barnes.

The death toll is nearly a hundred people, thousands injured, and damages in billions. It starts to rain, with surviving civilians having a sigh a relief.
Reese shows up with the family dog Max, along with a call from the police chief on how to rebuild the city.
Roark tells Reese that he is on vacation after all, and to tell the chief that too, as he goes home with Kelly while Reese takes over to handle the situation.

Status: Active. Filming was shot primarily on location in Los Angeles, California. The score for the film was originally composed and orchestrated by musical conductor Alan Silvestri.
The mixing of the sound elements were orchestrated by Jim Tanenbaum and Dennis Sands. Among mainstream critics in the US, the film received generally mixed reviews.
The website's critical consensus reads, " Volcano ' s prodigious pyrotechnics and Tommy Lee Jones ' crotchety sneers at lava aren't quite enough to save this routine disaster film.
Janet Maslin wrote in The New York Times , " Volcano begins so excitably and hurtles so quickly into fiery pandemonium," but noted that "in the disaster realm, it's not easy to have it all.
A film this technically clever can't get away with patronizing and familiar genre cliches. I loved it when the firemen aimed their hoses way offscreen into the middle of the lava flow, instead of maybe aiming them at the leading edge of the lava—which they couldn't do, because the lava was a visual effect, and not really there.
A host of characters is introduced in the opening scenes, but Volcano doesn't know what to do with them. It can't make us care.
I'm not sure I've ever seen a disaster movie in which special effects this realistic and accomplished were put to the service of a premise this outlandish.
Commenting on the character significance of Mike Roark, played by Jones, he said it was "a wonderfully heroic figure — a man of action who never has time to rest.
The fate of the city rests on his shoulders, and he knows it. Jones' fierce, unflagging portrayal helps us accept Roark not only as the man to save L.
But there's no mistaking this as anything but a blockbuster trying to get a running jump on competition like The Fifth Element and The Lost World.
This isn't the kind of film where it's worth waiting for the video tape — it's too big and brash, and demands the speakers and atmosphere of a state-of-the-art theater.
Lava heat. The coast may be toast, but it's the lava, covering everything like a malevolent tide of melted butter, that makes this a disaster picture that's tastier than usual.
Writing for Time Out , author TCh said, "The most striking aspect of this fun, old-fashioned disaster movie is the novelty of seeing the most familiar of backdrops used as a creative resource in its own right.
She called the film "depreciating entertainment value of the natural-disaster trend" while also mentioning how the "High-caliber special effects are still fun, but all this lock-step storytelling is wearing thin.
So bad, in fact, that the screening audience I viewed Volcano with seemed to enjoy it immensely, hooting and hollering and laughing as though it were an old episode of Mystery Science Theater Rita Kempley of The Washington Post , openly wondered why "there's no volcano in "Volcano"?
The hokey disaster drama features towering plumes of smoke, a splendid display of fireworks and brimstone, and rivers of molten magma, but I'll be darned if there's a burning mountain.
Director Mick Jackson, who also made Steve Martin's wry " L. Story ," must have had his hands full with the logistics of this bombastic extravaganza.
He sets a blistering pace, but the movie never generates any real thrills. Volcano premiered in cinemas on April 25, At its widest distribution in the United States, the film was screened at 2, theaters.
Following its cinematic release in theaters, the film was released in VHS video format on May 26, Special features for the DVD include interactive menus, scene selection and the original theatrical trailer.
It is not enhanced for widescreen televisions. Les dialogues sont tout ce qu'il y a de plus nunuches, des acteurs de choix mais totalement artificiels et Un pur foutage de tronche….
Secret de tournage. Vous ne savez pas quoi regarder ce soir? Si vous aimez ce film, vous pourriez aimer Black Storm.
Alerte tornade. La Grande inondation. Et oui, c'est un blockbuster qui n'a pas pour ambition autre que de divertir.
Perso, le pic de Dante m'ennuie. Le pic de Dante est soporifique. Watch the video. Need some streaming picks for the month? Here are the buzz-worthy titles you're going to want to mark on your calendar.
Something unspeakably chilling is ultimately starting to heat up at The City of Los Angeles! Beneath the famed La Brea Tar Pits, a raging volcano has formed, raining a storm of deadly fire bombs and an endless tide of white-hot lava upon the stunned city!
I find it's impossible to write a review of a Mick Jackson movie without pointing out that in he shocked the nation of Britain with his nuclear holocaust docu-drama THREADS.
Anyone who saw that on its BBC broadcast will never forget the grim , bleak , depressing and powerful depiction of the end of humanity.
Picking the dumbest script imaginable Jackson has decided he's going to enjoy himself this time and filmed the complete opposite to his nuclear holocaust horror show.
Remember in THREADS a myriad of scientific advisers were used? It goes without saying that no scientific bodies were consulted in the making of VOLCANO.
Mind you this may actually work in the context of the story since the characters are so dumb , there is a logic to having a bunch of underground workers being burned to death and no one saying " Hey these men were killed by lava.
If we don't evacuate the city millions of people are going to be burned alive by a volcanic eruption " Remember in THREADS after the bomb drops its everyman for himself?
That was probably the most terrifying thing about the docu-drama , of having your throat cut for your meager supplies of food.
But not here where the guardians of law and order are not only noble enforcers of justice throughout the movie but also make sure no one is discriminated on the grounds of race and culture.
You've also got the feeling that if looters existed in this movie they wouldn't be shot but given a place on a counseling program There's also a similar aspect to the above.
In THREADS people are left in the rubble to die since it's not practical to save them. Here the laws of physics have been changed so that if anyone is trapped under a burning truck a passer by can magically lift up the truck with one hand thereby rescuing the injured party.
There's even a scene of self sacrifice that has to be seen to be believed , not that the scene was in any way believable to start with The English speaking world are obsessed with their pets and Jackson used this to harrowing effect in THREADS.
We saw family pets suffocating in firestorms. If you didn't feel sorry for the human beings killed you'd feel sorry for the poor animals.
In VOLCANO we're treated to several scenes of pets in peril being rescued. I'm not sure how many people die on screen but I'm certain not one single type of mammal dies on screen apart from homo sapiens I don't believe for one moment that Mick Jackson's contrast between this and THREADS is coincidental - It's done entirely on purpose with the only connection being a scene of irony.
In THREADS this takes the form of characters standing in front of a billboard advertising life insurance while in VOLCANO a character reads a book on writing screenplays.
You won't need life insurance when the bomb drops while VOLCANO shows being able to read a book on screenplays doesn't mean you're capable of writing one Unfortunately VOLCANO flopped at the box office and only made half its production costs in American cinemas which effectively ended Mick Jackson's successful Hollywood career which is shameful.
I don't know about you but anyone who can direct two pieces of totally contrasting work is a literal genius in my opinion. All Titles TV Episodes Celebs Companies Keywords Advanced Search.
